Junior School Curricular and Co-Curricular

St Virgil’s College Junior School is an all boys Catholic primary school catering for boys in Kindergarten and Year 3 to 6. The Junior School sits in a central city campus next to the magnificent St Mary’s Cathedral. Prep will commence in 2022, followed by Year 1 in 2023 and Year 2 in 2024 completing the College's Kindergarten - Year 6 learning pathway at the Patrick Street campus. 

Our curriculum is comprehensive, interesting and challenging and encourages boys to strive for personal excellence in all endeavours. Our dedicated teaching staff focus on providing an engaging, challenging and supportive learning environment that is tailored to the needs of boys. Our staff implicitly understand that boys have different learning needs and styles and provide opportunities for boys to grow and experience success.

Our Learning Enhancement Department not only supports students who may be experiencing challenges accessing the curriculum, but also provides opportunities for extension and enrichment. We are focused on the boys’ literacy and numeracy skills and offer daily one on one sessions for those boys who need extra assistance.

Specialist teachers provide lessons in Art, Physical Education, Japanese, Music, Library and Woodwork.
